It should be a jpg image in your base\screenshots folder. Just double click it to open.

\cg_draw2D "1" will bring back the hud.

Regular file being an unknown file type?

Quake 3 will make screen shots into tga files unless you specify that you want them jpg. Jk2 is jpg by default but if something was changed that could be the problem.

Try this:

\bind F4 screenshotJPEG

You can use any key, I just use F4.

If it is still an unknown file type do this, right click > properties and tell me what the file extension is.

Hmmm that is wierd. It should come in your base folder as a jpeg picture. If you cant get it to work try cg_draw 0 to clear the screen and then use noclip with rifle scope to get the pic. You can also do this in spec mode also. I hope this helps!:D

Well, I have it bound like this:

Bind x screenshot

there is no 'JPEG or any other file extention on it.
